I always saw myself as this quiet, introspective, thoughtful person.
I've learned that I'm a lot stronger than I thought I was.
I studied abroad my junior year of college.
I titled it 'Alaska' because the song sort of represents everything that happened in my life surrounding a hiking trip I took for a month in Alaska.
My goal really was to make pop music feel as human as possible.
You go to school in New York because you want New York and the life that comes with it.
People want to see a magical fairytale story, but the reality is that I spent a lot of time making music alone in my bedroom.
I think, as a musician, or even as a citizen of the world, I just want to be a part of something or feel connected to something bigger than myself.
